We actually had one on a car when I was a kid because it happened to come with the car. The antenna wasn't that tall, and was magnetic. It just sat in the trunk and when we wanted to fool around we stuck it to the trunk.

"the rear wheel bearings that you ordered were out of stock and we won't be caring that brand anymore. We went ahead and found a comparable pert from BMW and ordered that for you." unfortunately for me not only is the *** brand that BMW apparently uses 10$ more than I expected it was for only one bearing. they didn't want to screw me too hard so they only sent me one.... Oh and they didn't ask me or anything.. they just spent my thanksgiving money and won't give it back...
Hmmm that doesn't sound like something PP would do... Ive always had good experiences with them.. Dont they have a return policy or no? Sorry to hear man... If I had the extra cash i'd throw some holiday monies your way to at least host an invitation ...

My old e30 has some eBay headers on her, which make removing the filter impossible without un bolting the filter mounting block from the engine and removing both items...GIANT PITA!

This should allow me to move the filter and get at it easier than stock

Josh, I just ordered 2 RWBs from Pelican yesterday.

They were $35.50 each. They had 100+ in stock. They're still on their site.



Edit: For te ///M3, they're 48.25 each.

At that price, I doubt they were an OEM brand, though, right? They're usually about $50-60 for non-M.

Anyway, talk about a bad day at the autocross...



Pretty retarded track design. Autocrosses should be set in environments that allow drivers of all skill levels to push the limits without risking damage to their cars.

That sucks....every auto-x ive been to has been wide open with the exception of light poles, but the track always goes far out of the way of them.

That looks like it was a fairly correctable mistake though. He didn't countersteer the spin at all.

Maybe, but the point is that a good autocross track should allow for rookie mistakes. I did pretty much the same thing when I did my autocross the other month, but luckily there was nothing for me to hit (except the wall of embarrassment).

I agree with this 100%, bc when you autocross you dont want to have to drive like a granny to prevent an accident....you want to go balls out and learn from your mistakes but not destroy your car against a wall.

Joe, isn't that kinda pricey for an e46 with that many miles? It looks clean and all, but as a 3rd vehicle, with that many miles, 9k seems kinda high?

Very true, I forgot it was AWD too.... It'd be really cool too have no doubt, but what I tell everyone looking at cars; think of all the cool things you could do with that nearly $9k, and if you still want it, get it
